Any math nerd worth his crust in pie knows that this Saturday is kind of a big deal.
On this 3rd calendar month on the 14th day, the numeric universe will perfectly align at 3.141592653 or 3.14.15 at 9:26:53 a.m. and p.m., the date and time of the first 10 digits of Pi. This means pigs could fly, Houston could freeze over, and we can eat pie for as long as we can count the other trillion or so numbers of this beloved mathematical constant.
Where, oh, where to celebrate such an epic Pi Day? The most calculated of math nerds can count on these 3.14 suggestions.
On Saturday from 3:14 p.m. to 4:14 p.m., Olivella's gives you $3.14 off of the Metro-style pizza, which is a Northern Italian thin crust 'za that's big enough to feed 2 or 3 pi/e lovers. Three area locations (see the links at right). olivellas.com
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science
Because everyone should know what day it is, wear your Pi pride all day long by nabbing one of the Perot's TGIP T-shirts -- that would be Thank Goodness it's π Day -- while supplies last. They're $24.99. You might even get a half-price special if you get moving!

Around 11 a.m., check @EmporiumPies for the contest announcement, which should tell you how to enter and what you can win.
